Activity Overview


An important part of any story are the cause and effect relationships that drive the plot. Students can enhance prediction and problem-solving, by demonstrating their understanding of chain reactions in the novel. Creating a storyboard that shows the cause and effect in events will increase their understanding of these relationships.

For this activity, create a storyboard template with the "causes" of events already filled in, and ask students to depict the "effect". Alternatively, have students complete both cause and effect for a given event or series of events. When you click "Use This Assignment", both the example above and a blank template will copy into your account for you to customize as desired!


Example Events:

  • Stanley is hit by a pair of shoes
  • Stanley is arrested
  • Stanley finds Kissing Kate’s lipstick container
  • Stanley and Zero climb the mountain
  • Stanley and Zero eat the onions
